Welcome to Thompson Cancer Survival Center

Effective May 9, 2022: Updated Masking Guidelines

Masks are no longer required at our facility except under certain circumstances. Please note, visitors, patients, and healthcare workers may choose to wear a mask at any time, and patients may request that care team members who provide direct patient care wear masks. Read the updated policy.


We are more than a world-class cancer center. We are a cancer survival center, where leading cancer specialists use the most advanced technologies to achieve breakthrough successes in treating many types of cancer. Our network of cancer care providers, including those in our own medical oncology, hematology, and gynecologic oncology practice, Thompson Oncology Group, are supported by a team of patient navigators, dietitians, genetics counselors, clinical trial specialists, physicists, pharmacists, therapists, technologists, oncology nurses, social workers, and counselors who are all here to treat and beat cancer.

In addition to the original downtown Knoxville location, comprehensive Thompson facilities are located in West Knoxville, Oak Ridge, and Sevierville. Thompson Oncology Group also has clinics and services in Lenoir City, Blount, Harriman, and within the Morristown Regional Cancer Center.
